The best use that we could give to this consulting tool would be the intention of streamlining and maximizing the workflow; [BigTime Software] allowing us to perform tasks simultaneously [and increases] the profitability of the service.

I can't imagine a scenario where someone could misuse this tool.

MIP Fund Accounting

MIP is great when an organization has multiple departments. I am able to pinpoint exactly what department or event an expense was for because of the multiple options and layers to narrow down.Reports customizations are great in order to produce an understandable summary of the data for non-accounting professionals. This would be suitable for organizations who have staff with limited accounting knowledge outside the accounting team.

Pros

BigTime Software

  • Invoice Style and detail..Bigtime allows the user the ability to choose more of what you need to appear on your invoice with its window options.
  • Phase/Percentage Billing; ease of adding additional phases to a project mid-project; clearly identifying Retainers
  • Support Team- In particular Melissa D and Lina Z...Par Excellent on the Teams
  • WHIP/Reports/Review of Invoices just make the entire billing process a BREEZE has cut my time frame in half, a Incredible help in this Season of Remote Work Environment that we are adapting to.

  • Grant level accounting. We manage well over 50 active grants at any given time. This system allows us to track revenue and expenditures at a grant level which enables our staff to accurately and effectively manage, monitor and report to funders.
  • Allocations module. The allocation module functions enable us to set various allocation methods to capture overhead costs and allocate to cost centers and grants efficiently and effectively.
  • Fixed Asset module. The fixed asset module allows us to integrate asset tracking and depreciation schedules that are easy to use and integrated for efficiency.

Cons

BigTime Software

  • I would like the platform to save information in its database of the clients with whom we perform any type of professional service.
  • I would also like to see the bank reconciliation option implemented.
  • Among the aspects that I do not like about this tool, [is] that its user interface is not so intuitive, which means that we have to open several tabs to find the information we are looking for.
Tommy Parker | TrustRadius Reviewer

MIP Fund Accounting

  • I've sat on several trainings and I feel that they are basic and broad. More real-life and in-depth examples for people that have been using the software would be great. I think the trainings are more geared to those that are just beginning to use MIP Fund Accounting.
  • I would like to see MIP Fund Accounting create a bank feed function to be used to aid the bank reconciliations.
  • For EWS, I think it would be beneficial for employees to still be able to track their hours worked in each grant per day; instead of having to break those hours up in a Cost Center on time entry for each day. This gets very daunting for some folks that have 5 or 6 splits, to record that each day. We've set these people up with a Cost Center using a distribution code; but it would still be beneficial for an auditor to see an employee document their hours worked per grant each day.

Honestly - if we had the resources to move - we would do it in a heartbeat. We have wasted so much money on this program. I am so disappointed in this product. I am so glad that I did not install it here. I just want basic functionality - and this program does not deliver.

While it does require training, and I would suggest it be on site if possible or at their corporate training offices, most users adapt to it quickly. Most parts of the program have very similar layout and functionalities and ability to have tasks/reports pre-configured.

MIP Fund Accounting has worked very well for me. It has been ten years that I have been working with the software and have never had an issue with it crashing or losing information. I would definitely recommend this software to other users based on the experience I have had.

The support is amazing! They are always available through the chat interface in the program. Each support person has fully answered my questions the first time. I have had a positive experience with each inquiry. It is very important to me that I am able to get instant access to help so that I can make the most of the software and all of its capabilities.

We recently switched from the server version to the cloud version, and the first project manager did not answer any of my questions, and she was very unfriendly as well. I had a tremendous feeling of dread that we had made the wrong choice. A second project manager showed up, and she was exceptional! In fact we are still working with her and she's just amazing! PM #1 gets a 2, PM #2 gets a 10, so splitting the difference puts me at a 6.

There are no specifics on what happens if you make one choice or another to know which is the best selection. This is true for JVs and AP. In training we were not given specifics of what happens when one possibility is selected over another.

Denise O'Malley provided training for the HR module when we added it to our system. Denise also gave us a demo of the EWS module which we were able to see that it would not meet our needs. She was very kind about and understanding regarding the functions we needed with a time clock system.

Again, I was not directly involved with the planning and setup of the software. However, I was involved in training my staff during the implementation phase. As with any software implementation, consistency of training is key and a willingness to seek out help from Customer Support helps tremendously to insure accuracy of information and training.

Alternatives Considered

BigTime Software

While they have similar capabilities, our main reason for switching to BigTime Software was that Harvest could not reconcile expenses and labor hours into one budget line item, which threw off entire project budgets. In this regard, BigTime Software is more accurate and a much more powerful tool. While it's not as intuitive or aesthetically appealing, BigTime Software is a much better fit for our business.

I used Great Plains at a former job. It was also designed for non-profits. The payroll function/feature was much easier to maneuver than MIP Fund Accounting. The AP feature was comparable to that of MIP Fund Accounting and functioned somewhat the same. Which is nice. I do not know about the reports feature, as my reports processing was limited due to the job I had. Same with the budgeting features and A/R. We are a non-profit organization that wished to utilize a system designed specifically for this type of organization.

Not real sure what you mean by scalability. It seems to be able to handle all of the funds we are currently working with. If you mean the looks of it, some things are small and it would be nice to increase the size according to the user.

Return on Investment

BigTime Software

  • Before BigTime, we were using Excel to track everything, creating invoices, and run reports. Getting on BigTime has saved us tons of time and effort which equates to dollars saved on labor.
  • From a legal standpoint, BigTime has allowed us to be organized and prepared in the event we would need to present financial details to anyone.
Bobak Tehrany, P.E., PTOE | TrustRadius Reviewer

MIP Fund Accounting

  • It has fit our needs exactly.
  • It is all I've ever used at this organization. We briefly tried another setup in order to integrate with other systems and we quickly abandoned it to move back to MIP Fund Accounting (formerly Abila MIP).
  • It has been a big time saver at payroll time and tax time.
